Home health care is a choice of medical services offered at a patient's home. The purpose of home care is to help you recover from illness or injury, restore or maintain your independence, and manage your health outside of a nursing facility or hospital.
Hospice is a specialized way to support and care for people with life-threatening or advanced illnesses and their families. Instead of treating illness, hospice care focuses on physical comfort and emotional support so that they can live life to the fullest. It aims to provide comfort, improve quality of life and maintain dignity and choice.
Home health care and hospice require a doctor's visit, and both are covered by Medicare (although the requirements are not the same). Medical care in hospice is limited to chronically ill patients and includes pain treatment, relief of symptoms, and comfort (not treatment of the underlying disease). However, home health care helps you recover from the illness.
